turbo snails..

ok someone on here told me turbo snails do not reproduce in an aquarium..

of course I must have magic water, because my cichlids spawn like crazy and now I have found two extra turbo snails that I never purchased...

is this all part of my imagination?

Do you have LR?? If so they could have been hitchhickers on the LR.. How old is the tank? I thought all snails have the ability to reproduce in a tank.
